Acoustic treatment - Wimborne
- 3D model for planning purpose
RDP Interiror contractors where contacted to give a supply and install solution to a severe acoustic reverberation (Echo) problem.
This was a new building in which the architect had specified a solid plasterboard ceiling, solid walls and solid floor - Thus giving the perfect area for high reverberation times.
Being a multipurpose hall which is to be hired out for all types of activities and functions, speech intelligibility was a must.
From the initial site visit, it was made clear that keeping the cost to a minimum whilst having an effective solution was the most important factor, at the same time - It needed to look like it was apart of the original design.
Using all information collected on a site visit, RDP Interior Contractors where able to calculate the area needed to be covered with our sound absorption panels.
A 3D model was created showing how the panels will be set out within the area, and how they would match in with the existing 600 x 600 LED light panels.
After our client was in reciept of all the information the contract was awarded.
The result - Once the acoustic treatment works had been completed, there was a dramatic difference, which has lead to an increase in bookings for the venue.
RDP has since been involved with further projects with the charity.
"Undertaking this project was a cost we could of done without, although undertaking this project has meant we are now in a position to promote and hire this section of the venue to various other groups and gatherings. Longterm this was a good investment and we are very pleased at how RDP have kept us upto date with the project from start to finish. Over all very pleased with the project from start to finish."
"New Mezzanine floor - The install was quick and tidy. Really good work. The install team were pleasant, polite and very efficient. Would definitely recommend the company."
"Soundproof wall Work was carried out to a high standard with minimal mess. And the job has been successful in its objectives."
"New suspended ceiling and lighting “Competitively priced but above average communication and customer liaison. Work carried out to a very acceptable standard.”"
""I contacted RDP as I was in need of expert guidance for sound insulation between my flat and the flat above. Their response time to my email was almost immediate, and a survey visit was easily arranged, detailed quote provided and date scheduling without any issues. Ceiling and plaster [...]" work always creates dust, but the guys were brilliant in trying to minimise the impact and cleaned up at the end of each day. Their attention to detail and care taken was excellent, you wouldn't know that they had been working here, and the sound from above is greatly reduced. I would highly recommend them.""
"So, initial contact and site visit was very good; polite, informative, friendly, knowledgeable and gave us confidence in the proposed solution. We appreciated the flexibility in pricing to accommodate my proposal that I remove the existing ceiling due to original unusually low ceiling [...]" height. The standard of works that were carried out were to a very high standard, and were started and finished on time. The plaster finish was excellent, the floor covering was very effective and even the clearing up was very professional. The footfall problem that we were experiencing from the flat above was so severe that we were not sure whether we would be able to actually stay in the flat or whether we would have to sell it on. The actual effectiveness of the soundproofing is such that we are now able to enjoy our stays in the flat. We are still waiting for the cold weather before we can properly judge the insulating properties of the ceiling. However early indications are that it has made quite a difference. We are pleased to say that we will without doubt, highly recommend your company. "
"The work was carried out whilst I was away on annual leave, but the finished product is a really good addition to AFC Bournemouth's broadcast interview rooms, and we are very happy with RDP."
